aspects of the drilling project requested by the Peruvian environmental
authorities including details of mining and surface titles, the
proposed exploration program, a citizen participation plan, an
environmental base line study, and the closing plan following initial
Dr Graham Carman states: "The signing of surface access agreements with
local landholders at La Puerta is an important milestone for the
project. The surface access permits will allow our drill program to be
fast-tracked, and to test our highly encouraging surface gold results.

authorities required for drilling, including the DIA and water
permits. Darwin remains on track to begin drilling after the wet
season during Q2 2013. "
